in charlotte, north carolina, wolf, biden said how can the romney campaign justify raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried -- in his words, buried, the last four years. paul ryan at a campaign event in iowa just a few moments ago seized on those comments and said vice president biden said that the middle class has been buried. we agree. he goes onto say that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states, wolf. i have a strong sense this will be brought up at tomorrow night's debate, wolf. >> we'll have a lot more on what joe biden has just said and the very tough reaction coming in from the romney campaign. gloria borger is standing by on that front. both of these campaigns are bringing major surrogates to denver to appear in the so-called spin room after the debate tomorrow night. what are you learning about the romney campaign's people who are coming in? >> reporter: wolf, it's probably no surprise rob portman, mitt romney's chief sparring partner playing barack obama in the debate, he'll be in the spin room. but we've also learn
's obviously a whole realm of possibilities for misstatements and missteps. today joe biden said something that's getting a lot of play on the right. take a listen to this. >> how they can justify -- how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class has been buried the last four years, how in lord's name can they justify raising their taxes? >> jennifer: so biden of course supposed to help with white middle class voters. his comments about the middle class being buried were -- he was talking about romney's plans to raise taxes on the middle class. but the right and their surrogates are out having press conferences about this right now, probably as we speak. is that kind of going to hurt? >> actually, i think if you ask the voters, i think joe biden proved what's great about joe biden. he gets it. he's in touch. you know what? 80% of the voters agree. this economy has been bad. people have been buried. that's why they want to elect a president and a vice president who get it. who are in touch and will have
-american vote in places like florida where vice president joe biden defted obama ease relationship with israel. >> i'm not going to talk about israel today. but i want to say one thing. i just want to tell you how proud i am, how proud i am to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with a guy who has done more for israel's physical security than any president of the eight i've served with. >> reporter: switching gears to court the state's senior citizens, biden said romney's plan to lower taxes would force the nation's elderly to pick up the tab. >> their plan they have for social security, the one they have now, would raise taxes on your social security. >> reporter: romney, who has accused the president of misleading the public on the subject of taxes repeated his pledge on the issue. >> i will not raise taxes on middle income americans. >> reporter: less than one week from his debate with the president, romney is trying to expand the election map boldly predicting twice during his visit to pennsylvania that he can win here. >> you know, i've got a little secret here. and that is that obama campaign thi
biden at a rally in charlotte. >> this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> in the richest country in the history of the world this obama economy has crushed the middle class. >> reporter: romney's ad team quickly seized on the remarks churning out a web video. at an event in denver rubio piled on. >> those happen to be the words of the distinguished vice president of the united states mr. joe biden. no, don't boo. he's the best thing we got going, guys. don't boo. because in a moment of clarity, in a brief moment of clarity he just told us what we already knew. >> reporter: romney's aides say they expect the president to call on the gop nominee to offer specifics. >> we're going to limit deductions. >> reporter: but in an interview with the denver tv station, romney began to do just that. >> well, you could do something for instance as an option you could say everybody's going to get up to a $17,000 deduction. and you can use your charitable deduction or home mortgage deduction or o
and there. >>> an amazing story. want to go to vice president joe biden he's exchange in charlotte, north carolina. 15 electoral votes up for grade. >> they put two wars on a credit card. refusing to pay for them. i introduced the legislation to pay for the war. number two they added a new prescription drug entitlement that they didn't pay for. and then they added a $1 trillion tax cut for the very wealthy on top of that. now, they -- those are the facts. the end result of all that was by the time we were elected they had in eight years doubled the national debt, that clock, doubled it and in addition to that they had the slowest job, private job growth since world war ii under this policy. and by the time the president sat down behind that famous desk the resolute in noble office within a week of sitting down our economists told us mr. president you're going to have to deal with a $1 trillion debt this year because there's nothing you can do about it. the budget was passed back october. and so ladies and gentlemen so much for their credibility on the debt, but what did it produce for us?
president biden condemned mitt rochl any for are you saying we should be readied to go to war? yes, we should be ready to go to war with iran and if we're ready to go to war with iran and iran knows it, we won't have to go to war with iran. >> and general clark, welcome back. he also writes that president obama has called the concerns over iran noise, quote/unquote, and that secretary of defense leon panetta has repeatedly and emphatically outlined the dangers of military action against iran. and joe biden as he said has made fun of the whole thing. it doesn't sound like an open and shut commitment that the u.s. would use military option, general clark. what's your take? >> i think it's an open and shut commitment. i think the president said he'll do whatever it takes. i think he can do it. we know what the military option is. it's been talked about many times. you've seen it on display in iraq and afghanistan. we used a military option in kosovo when i was the commander, the iranians should be under no doubt that this option can be used. it will be effective and it will result in the
campaigning in iowa and joe biden in north carolina. but nothing on romney's campaign schedule and president obama is just wrapping up some final debate prep in nevada. in ohio, early voting gets underway today. here's a look at some great video of people camping out to be able to cast their vote at the cuyahoga county board of elections. state senator nina turner was very first and said the long line is symbolic of how important voting is in ohio. cleveland mayor frank jackson also showed up for some moral support. so far 32% of republicans have requested early ballots. and 26% of democrats. and these early votes in ohio could really be symbolic. mitt romney likely will not become president unless he can take ohio. more john fuglesang coming up on the "full court press" after the break. stay with us. you're about to watch an ad message created by a current tv viewer for capella university. matter. >> i work with adults with developmental disabilities. growing up i had a single mother of four and people in the community were
," vice president joe biden holds a campaign rally in fort myers, florida, as part of his campaign tour through this battleground state, which began today in bogor raton -- in boca raton. \ we will have that live tomorrow beginning at 11:40 a.m. eastern here on c-span. >> my opponent and his running mate by big believers in top- down economics. they basically think that if we just spend another $5 trillion on tax cuts that favor the very wealthy -- [crowd boos] >> don't boo. vote. vote. [cheers and applause] >> he has won no idea. there is one thing he did not do in its first four years he said he will do in his next four, which is to raise taxes. is there anybody who thinks raising taxes will help grow the economy? >> no. >> his plan is to continue what he has done before. the status quo has not worked. we cannot afford four more years of barack obama. we are not going to have four more years of barack obama. memo wednesday, president obama and mitt romney meet in their first presidential debate -- >> wednesday, president obama and money in the first presidential debate, hosted by jim
biden. >> i was there. you electrified the place. they all say why do we have the 22nd amendment. why couldn't bill clinton run and be president for the next 30 years? >> we have it for good reasons. it's a hard job being president. you also have a vast array of people working for you. it worked, i think, well. i think we did the right thing to keep president roosevelt for a third term. when he died shortly after being elected to a fourth term and people didn't really know a full measure of his health challenges, the 22nd amendment passed. it's ironic at a time people thought the democrats had a lot in the white house. then it was, then after the last 50 years, the republicans had it more than the democrats. but, i think there's still an argument for saying that eight years, certainly eight years in a row is enough. you don't want this -- you don't want to run the risk of sclerosis in a democratic society. you don't want to give the idea that any country, particularly this one as big and diverse is dependent on any one person. look at the dictators that have been deposed in the last f
egyptians who heard vice-president joe biden declared that hosni mubarak was a democrat in the julian assange was a high-tech terrorist. it is disrespectful to the dead and to be incarcerated of bringing costs uprising to claim the united states supported the forces for change. that is indeed audacity. who can say it is not audacious to the president's concern to appear to look leaderly, look back on this change, the people's change, and tries to call it his own. we can take hours because it means the white house has seen this progress is inevitable. in this season of progress, the president has seen which way the wind is blowing. and he must pretend it is his in ministration who made it below. >> wikileaks founder julian assange addressing a side meeting of the u.n. general assembly wednesday night. for more, we're joined by michael ratner, legal advisor to julian assange and wikileaks. welcome to "democracy now!" talk about what he said and also this latest information that has come out under the freedom of information act that suggests the u.s. may be looking at julian assange as a
palin/joe biden debate. because there was the katie couric interview, the fact that she was able to hold her own was a victory at all. >> i think to some extent it factors in only as much as it drives the news coverage after the fact. even though debates are watched by many millions of americans a lot of what they understand about the debate is not only a factor of their own predispositions but a function of the way that the news coverage of it. if there's better coverage, i think that's probably going to send a more positive signal to the voters to be persuaded by this. >> maybe it didn't win or lose an election can create a lasting impression. i think of 2000 when al gore sighed his way through that debate. it really sort of added to the idea we already had of him as petulent, condescending, unlikable. that was an idea that carried through the rest of the election. >> in fact, that first debate in which gore behaved that way is actually one where we can see two to three-point swing after the fact. >> wow, yeah. >> puts bush in the lead. again, i think that suggests that there are alway

. i liked the bill. john kerry and joe biden voted for the bill. that was an important piece of legislation. vote againstp cutting spending, requiring people to work for their checks, and against that landmark legislation? >> i did not boast against -- i did not vote against cutting spending p. i work with john t. sick and newt gingrich in 1997, and eat a balanced budget. it got the job done. the balanced the budget. we were paying off debt. the unemployment rate was going down. other than that it did not work. i did not like the welfare bill, because it did not provide the kind of child care support that we needed to provide, and became in in 1997 and did it. i did not require -- i did not oppose people of the kind to have to work. i do not disagree with that position at all. to say that i have opposed spending cuts is inaccurate. i was governor in 1983 when we were in recession. week lowered the tax on food as a consequence of a significant effort by the legislature. it was every interest group in the state that lined up. spend more money here, there. we held the line. in t
in the military. he is out there for his own agenda. vice-president biden has one son that is patriotic to our country. host: how about a final thought from you in a broad sense about campaign 2012 that foreign policy would plaly. guest: governor romney is a patriotic american and wants to contribute. i think he is having a problem in the campaign. foreign policy is becoming a bigger issue because of these terrible events in the middle east. both candidates want to sanction china because of the threat of war. i think president obama has the advantage going into the debate. the present's record is very solid -- the president's record is very solid. mitt romney has to develop some well considered ideas -- here's what i would do on the big issues. how we can stop iran from becoming a nuclear weapons power. how do we bring peace to the palestinians? that is a debate we should have. it should not be partisan. i am looking for to the debates. host: nicholas burns, former u.s. ambassador and now teaching at the harvard. thank you for joining us this morning. guest: thank you very much. host: we will
that happened in benghazi, biden said something has gone to happen in the middle east. and also, he went over there in the middle of august. so, does anybody else not see any correlation there to what is going on? about the cover-up? thank you. host: where caller: do see a: they do not tell the truth -- host: where do you see the cover up? guest: they do not tell the truth. they are killing people. diplomats. and also, here they are, covering up everything. and there will not tell the truth that it was a terrorist attack and there are terrorists all around the world. and if people cannot see that, we are not safe. this president has done nothing to keep us safe, except he killed bin laden, big deal, he used bush's people. he has not created any jobs that you can see. there are 23 million americans still without employment. why would anyone want to vote for him again. host: on our line for democrats. caller: good morning. i just want to talk about voter suppression and a voter id, that kind of stuff that is going on. with as a voter suppression. it makes voter id a major issue. and i hear it a
as biden and lugar and carry and richard holbrooke and hillary clinton, there is this effort to sycamore regard to break out of this narrative. were going to break out of this seeming straitjacket of the up and down of the relationship. regard to put our money where our mouth this. we measure things. the tool we use to try to show the we are serious. and that money was the legislation which promised seven a half billion dollars in civilian aid of the five years at the beginning of the obama administration. if i understand correctly touch and projectiles at the time the amount but if i understand this correctly this was a deeply idealistic effort to try to say we are not only going to give money, were not only going to have an impact with a fairly large civilian assistance program to balance, if you will, are ongoing military commitment to pakistan, but we're also going to set up a structure or relationship through what was generally called a strategic partnerships to try to make -- to break out of that pattern. after 2008-9, those of you who knew richard holbrooke knew that the hurricane
to say, kind of the joe biden way, one for you, one for me? everyone was locked in their dogma? >> in the beginning, not in the beginning of the book but in the beginning of obama coming into office, he really -- there was a sense boehner and obama could work together. >> yes. >> that ended relatively quickly. what happened? >> it did. it ended -- boehner reached out to the president. they had lots of meetings. i described their private meetings in detail. as boehner said, at one of the first meetings, the president was cidrinking iced tea and chewing on an nicorette because of his smoking habit and there's boehner over there having a cigarette and red wine, merlot. in a since, they made some progress, but they did not get there. i chart in thousand of words the exact negotiations, the phone calls. you see something that didn't get fixed. i is an i term shame it didn't get fixed. >> why after this research it is harder today to make deals. you see the history of this, people are able to make deals when there are real people sitting across from each other. what is it about this
gore or joe biden have charitable contributions of $350 per year. i would not think you could argue that mitt romney has gotten p too muchuffy press. i think his interview on "six"the minutes was pretty good. they ask what your idea of leadership was in that as a nice generic question. i need spirit -- i think there needs to be substantive questions as well. host: i want to make sure that the folks see this a -- in "the washington post" last wemple reported thisric -- guest: there is a danger in a candidate talking about the media bias. the media of will turn around and say you are losing. this is a lot of what we have seen in the last couple of weeks. there was an associated press report that said romney is struggling to exert his influence in the poll. you don't want to get across the idea of losing but this is what happens. the media runs with a poll they are taking and they treat the race like it is over. we are in september. that's what i don't like. people should let this election process conclude before they say is so host: over. next up is silver spring, maryland, go ahead.
. it is my understanding, for example that in 2008, the one vice presidential debate between biden and pailin drew more interest than other debates. i guess because people were wondering what kailyn was going to do. and i mentioned the one in 1998 between bentsen and quayle. there are other cases of dramatic moments as well. we should definitely pay attention to the vice- presidential debate as well. host: robert in queens, new york. republican line, good morning. caller: if the mainstream media were to cover this in a normal fashion like they should, do you think people would pay attention? there are a lot of people but do not know this exists. there were only 45 seconds of the transcript from what i understand. i just like to know how you feel the election would be assuming the mainstream media were to cover things like this. it is definitely not on any front page of any paper today and i believe it is front-page news. host: and just for some context talking about this obama video, it says it was billed as a bombshell. guest: some republicans might say this is the from the answer to the 47%
nebraska liked the ball. -- the bill. senator kerrey and joe biden voted for the bill. that was an important piece of legislation. can you explain to us why did you vote against cutting spending? why did you vote against requiring people to work for their welfare check? and why did you vote against that landmark piece of legislation? >> you have 90 seconds. >> first of all, that is several questions. i did not vote against cutting spending. we supported the george bush budget in 1990. we did the same thing in 1993. and i worked with john kasic and newt gingrich rich, and it got the job done. we balanced the budget. we were paying off debt. the economy was growing. the unemployment rate was going down and poverty rates were going down. other than that, it didn't work. i didn't like the welfare bill. i voted against it because i didn't believe it provided the kind of child care and work support we needed to provide. we came back in, in 1997, and did it. idon't oppose of people-- don't oppose at all. receiving welfare to have to work. i think it is a good thing to do. i w
. >> you quote a former chief of staff to vice-presidents al gore and joe biden. let me read some of his points -- can you elaborate? >> sure. he is not really specifically using this advice for romney or obama, although i have no doubt many of these tips are being passed on to president obama. it is interesting. that was my first short summary of what he has to say. he went into more depth about each one of those things. impressions of the debate are formed very early. in the first half hour. a lot of the reporters will be writing their stories in the first half hour. you need to come out strong. if there is something you want to say, you have to say it right away. you suggest candidates, when they come out to the stage, write down three points they want to make. when you are watching the debates, you see that. talking points in response to any sort of question. the idea of do not debated moderator is do not say, he got more time, i need more time. those things may be true but it doesn't look good. >> are those moments magnified in a nationally televised presidential debate? >> i think
the that katmai's -- my surprising thing was about vice-president biden. he will talk about anything for a long time because he likes to do that. and even as vice president, i am surprised at how open he is. when you do encounter him, he will still stop and talk and actually enter questions. it is refreshing because it is so rare. >> we all talk to people every day and when you hear an authentic cancer, you know that is not a talking point. i don't know what to do with that because you get used to them saying the same things over and over. our job is to get through it. >> what about the first lady? i will open up to the floor after this. are they exactly the way they come across on tv and in the press? >> i have so much admiration for all first ladies, without exception. because they are judged so harshly, they can do nothing right. i am a little upset with michele today because i have not been able to eat. >> does she do that at every lunch and class >> i am trying to be more nutritious, kids are boycotting because they say they want macaroni and cheese. i don't know mrs. obama well left and s
did indeed work. .. >> barack obama and joe biden are rated higher than mitt romney and paul ryan. a little bit of the buyers. we are looking across conditions. next slide, please. we asked them to rate the evaluation of the stimuli. we asked them how accurate, how and credible -- it's a little higher on accurate and informative and credible. the black is little higher on engaging but a lot higher on entertaining. if you go back to our original slide we note the effectiveness of these two types of fact-checking are comparable. so what is the final take way, identifying and debunking the sets of claims in political ads people think is much more entertaining. thank you.
